of the women's initiative at the george w. bush institute, mrs. bush continues her work on global health care innovations, and powering women in emerging democracies, education reform, and supporting the women and men who serve in america's military. in september, 2011, the bush institute, the u.s. government, una, and the susan g. komen for the care announced $85 million red rivet initiatives, a partnership to leverage our resources to combat cervical and breast cancer in developing nations. my organization care at the honor of having mrs. bush as the keynote speaker at our annual conference a couple of years ago. she was introduced them by her twin daughters, barbara and jenna, who gave one of the most touching introductions i have ever heard. they painted a fuller picture of their mother and reminded all of us of the multiple roles women balance every day in ways that are truly remarkable. as they did, i want to present to you a woman leader of great depth and accomplishment as i have noted but a woman was also a wife, and mother, and a friend to all of us in this room who fight for equali
president's son, george w. bush, who is conservative on many issues but lead on this issue. on this issue, or whether it is gay rights, or woman's reproductive rights, can you imagine a similar transformation happening in conservative figures? >> yes, i always say it is inevitable to us, inconceivable to them, and it is our job to shorten the distance between the inevitable and the inconceivable. it takes our work not only inside to maneuver and persuade, but the outside mobilization it is essential, and in almost every issue the american people are ahead of the elected officials. i had the privilege of being in new york city with some colleagues yesterday with bono, who had worked on the aids issue. we started working with bono on that debt forgiveness issue, the millennium challenge in the jubilee year to end that debt that some many countries were oppressed with. that is the initiation of communication with jesse helms, on the debt forgiveness, and we said to bono did you have to be bipartisan, and you will have to reach out to some of these people, and the next thing you know jesse he
for the republican candidate including george h.w. bush, including bob dole. i've been involved now six presidential campaigns and now the seventh. it's great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i know he was great with john mccain. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. as he said, if you're an entrepreneur and you're a risk taker, you need a new business environment. part of that is going to be dictated by washington. right now with the taxes and regulations, healthcare cost, the uncertainty over energy, all the unpredictability in our economy, it's difficult to get people to take a risk and make an investment and do what steve has done. my dad is a small business guy who took a big risk and left his job and start his own business. later years i asked him whether he would do it again, he had so said i don't know. there's so much uncertainty out there. frankly you have a government in washington who don't seem to get it and it's making it difficult to create jobs. steve is concerned now. on monday i will be helping the romney victory effort in boston. i will be speaking at couple
-frank legislation and the case being put forward by c. boyden gray, who served in the george w. bush administration. our phone lines are open. you can join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an e-mail. what is the constitutional argument that you are putting forth that this is not constitutional? guest: our argument is that there is no oversight for this huge bureaucracy. the president, once he appoints the director, will no longer have influence on what the director does, and not have a check on his or her power. the congress has no financial responsibility because the bureau is paid for by the fed, which is beyond congress control with its budget, and they can do whatever the concern all -- consumer bureau wants to do with the 18 statutes that have been handed to them, implemented by the fed or the trade commission, where several other agencies. -- or several other agencies. so, the whole world is turned upside down, and richard cordray can do anything he wants without any political check on what he does. it is unprecedented. there is no animal like this in the federal government, an
tag of $12.3 billion. the former press secretary to george w. bush has an op ed piece in "the wall street journal." george w. bush writes himself -- extending the fight beyond aids. 20,000 delegates are gathering in washington for the 2012 international aids conference. gains in aids treatment are remarkable and are continuing. he says there is more to be done in places like africa. other diseases must also be dealt with. he says of his heart wrenching to save a woman from aids only to watch her die from other diseases. the question for you this morning is whether or not you think u.s. banks should be nationalized inspired to ask this by an office in the new york times today. it says wall street is too big to regulate. caller: thank you for taking my call. and the bank should not be nationalized, however, the federal reserve needs to be ended, and factional reserve lending should be ended. the bank should only lend money that they have, and that would actually solve the problem. the creation of money should go back through congress to create the money supply, and that would end a l
would simply say this to you, i wouldn't agree with hardly anything he did. but george w. bush was my president. ronald reagan was my president. i'm just saddened by the fact that we somehow reached point in this country for whatever reason, we don't have one president that represents all of us. we should get beyond all off that rhetoric and beyond this bill and talk about what really matters in this country which is jobs as you said. >> being amazed how much foxx and i have in common. i think the thing that bothers me about what she said is this notion of freedom. in other words, my idea is freedom of speech, freedom of religion. it's not the freedom to have healthcare. the problem i look at it from a responsibility point of view which is what the republicans often talk about. monday, it's not fair if you will, that people not take care responsibility for their own lives. why should so. of us be paying these large premiums and bills for people who don't decide to have health insurance? i also think that the other thing you said that i don't agree with, there are a lot of people out
of both parties, h.r. 4607, absolutely -- h.r. 4607 is absolutely long overdue. president george w. bush rushed excess amounts to close before he left. president obama will undoubtedly do the same. that's wrong. it's simply wrong. and we know it is and we know that often, as this bill says, these are regulations that aren't heard before the election and are concluded in those 75 days before departure. it's wrong, we know we need to stop it, we shouldn't abrogate our responsibility and the members on the other side will suddenly decide, i'm sure, this is a better idea should mitt romney be elected in the fall. this bill is supported by the chamber of commerce, association of builder andy contract -- builders and contractors, small business and entrepreneurs council, and the national federation of independent businesses. the fact is, this is about simply saying, not that we're going to stop 3,000 regulations, but that we're going to slow and evaluate more carefully the 66 largest of them by this administration last year. during debate the administration was essentially lauded for having pa
's bullet proof vest. they finally did but only after years of fighting over this issue. george w. bush overturned the ban on assault weapons. obama has to reinstate that ban, get rid of the high capacity magazine. we're turning into a gun happy, gun crazy country and i'm more concerned that their motto is don't tread on me. well, my motto is don't tread on the american people anymore. host: that was not oscar, that was jennifer, thank you very much for the call from new york city. jermaine has this point,: the denver post has punished some -- published some of the most horrific shootings in history, leading the list is suspect james egan holmes, who shot 71 people, killing 12. in the virginia tech shooting, # two were killed, 27 wounded, in 1966, charles whitman, 47 people shot, 16 were killed, 31 wounded, killeen, texas, 45 people were shot at luby's cafeteria, 23 fatally shot, at mcdonald's in san ysidro, california, 40 people shot, 19 wounded, and at columbine high school in littleton, colorado, 39 people were shot, 13 died, 26 wounded, the list is available at denver post.com. than
to believe this is beneath contempt, yet it did undermine his candidacy and helped reelect george w. bush. i don't think barack obama will make that mistake, he understands the ultimate goal is winning campaigns and getting reletting, that's the best way to push his agenda forward and they are doing that. host: the gospel according to the fix and your blog, entitled the fix, where did you come up with that? guest: i recently did a book signing and someone asked me that question and i said it was a compromise in a lot of ways. first of all, any time you try to name any political blog at this point that has campaign or 2012 or two on it's already taken. number two, we did this in '05 and the goal was, the conceit of the fix, the blog, was are there enough people who are political addicts and that's kind of where we got the fix from, this would be your fiction, if you were a political junkie and you loved the granular politics, if you wanted to talk about in the book i say my fest of a political junkie is if at this point in the 2012 campaign, if i mention the 2016 handicapping for president,
hollow. republicans have been saying this for decades but have never put it into practice. george w. bush left a legacy of debt from two unfunded wars and benefits to the wealthy. taking aim at the president, president obama has also failed to articulate what a second term would look like." again, from "at the l.a. times." are you getting the vision you want from your candidates? mitt romney, new hampshire, part of a bus tour that began about 1 1/2 weeks ago where he tried to articulate his view of the country. [video clip] >> for the last few years to many americans have been struggling and i and distress. the spirit of enterprise, the spirit that howard america's economic engines for growth and prosperity, that spirit still lives strong. it is the goal of this campaign and the mission of my presidency to nurture that spirit and see it flourish in this great land. >> those comments came from -- host: those comments are from mitt romney. there is a story this morning on the front page of "the new york times." propelled by a torrent of blistering advertisements, the president is raising qu
. when you reduce taxes, as john f. kennedy did, as ronald reagan did, as george w. bush did, and in fact, the bush tax cuts resulted in a 13% increase in revenue. the president knew that. he said that if you keep money in the private sector, it is not the government put the money, it is the people's money. if people keep the money, they could invest, hire more people. i believe tax cuts clearly create jobs, which then increases revenue and the bush tax cuts prove that point. i would be happy to get that information to you. do not hesitate to contact my office a i am telling the truth. host: barbara. south dakota. independent line. caller: good was just curious, e elected as a representative, senator, or congressman, i understand you are part of either the democratic or republican party, but once you are elected, is it not your duty to represent both parties, the democratic and republican, because you are our elected official? is it not your responsibility to look at both sides and take the best pieces from both sides and decide what is went to work best for the people that live in this c
trillion national debt. but our program under george w. bush -- the tarp program under george w. bush, the federal reserve printed $15 trillion to pass that budget. this money going out the back door from this government agency, nothing going to happen. is my comment. host: on twitter, john in north carolina finishes that sentence -- he says perhaps boring $400 million a day might being a little disruptive in the long run. maverick says we should have spending cuts because america cannot afford the bush tax cuts which is paid for by borrowing. finally, another comment, but of course, spending cuts that will definitely happen are the cutting and repeal of obamacare. now our next caller. caller: spending cuts should not happen. government is everywhere. i mean that in a good way. in the structure -- in philadelphia we had a water main break because the infrastructure is never maintained. people believe they want to return to the wild west. there was very little government, but people died at the age of 40, there was tribalism, the nomophobia was everywhere. people say that they want to

bob dole, and george w. bush. i have been involved in six campaigns. it is great to see steves resolve as an entrepreneur. we used to talk about what it was like back home and it is great to see this place and the other ways he has created jobs here and engage in the campaign. if your and entrepreneur, a risk taker, you need a business in government and part of that will be dictated by washington. and right now, with taxes and regulation and to all of the unpredictability in the economy, it is difficult to get people to take a risk. i come out of that background of small business in ohio. my dad left his job to start his own business. in his later years i asked him whether he would do it again and he had to say he did not know. there's so much uncertainty out there. you have a government that does not seem to get it. they're making it more difficult and not easier to get jobs. steve has taken risks and is concerned. as all of us are. on monday i will be helping our around the victory effort in boston. i will be speaking at a couple of that there, helping to raise money for the campaign
this repudiation of george w. bush, i know he's not coming to the convention, but he signed sarbanes oxley. oxley is mike oxley mitigating circumstance predsessor as chairman of the committee. it's an accounting requirement. and what this does is to make another chunk out of that regulation. maybe we hear different people. the american people -- my friend says the american people are crying out for an end to regulation. every indication i have is everybody is tired of irresponsibility, by a few, not everybody, but they are tired of people being scammed and the notion that the fact -- that what we need is less regulation is an odd one. it comes from people who didn't see the cry sess we had because sarbanes-oxley came about after enron. so i would align myself with president bush, i think he got this up with right. i think mike oxley got this one right. for startups, for people about to go public, they have a $250 million exemption. but to give a permanent exemption is a mistake and don't start monkeying with cost benefit analysis. the chair: the gentleman's time has expired. the question is on th

profound political impact but doesn't get a lot of attention was right after george w. bush was reelected in 2004, he was inaugurated. he went out around the country on a barn storming tour to privatize social security and that went great. >> and when he started to do this he thought he was going to win and the poll numbers looked good. and you were a key part of what i think has to be universally acknowledged as a democratic defeat of that republican initiative. how did you beat george w. bush on that subject? >> it was a decision that we made that we were going to preserve social security. this is the pillar of our society of security, retirement security for our seniors. and all that meant to the rest of the families. and so when i had the opportunity to become leader, of course it was my goal to obtain the majority and we went to some people on the outside to the public -- the private sector and said if you were, i don't know these things but if you were tylenol and you wanted to be advil -- i don't know which was first but if you were number two and wanted to be number one what would
. there is no credible evidence to support this proposition. during the administration of george w. bush, the department of education publishes a highly respected study on tuition price increases. it found that the primary driver of tuition price increases in public institutions where over 3/4 of our graduate students attend college, is the change in state funding as states invest less money in higher education. the institutions respond by raising prices. the study found no relationship between the availability of federal and state grants and the ensuing chore -- tuition price increases in public or private not-for-profit institutions. as institutions raise prices, they have an obligation to ensure they increase their own financial aid program to hold harmless these neediest students. last year, our state cut michigan state university appropriation by 15%. our board raised tuition 6.9% to compensate in part for these cuts. the board also increased our own institutional grant aid by 10% with 83% of these grants dollars going to students with financial need. this is an example of what institutions need to

undeveloped forests, the so-called roadless areas. in 2001 the bush administration, yes the george w. bush administration, issued regulations to protect these areas. in an effort recognized as one of the most far-reaching conservation initiatives taken by the federal government in decades. now a decade later after litigation, 60 million acres of our forests and the clean water derived from those forests are now protected from harmful development. . 354 municipal water supplies flow through roadless areas on their way to homes and businesses. these areas are -- they include sacred sites for native americans. they include biological strongholds for fish and wildlife. the continued protection of these areas is something that people all over america care about. i know the gentleman thinks that this is somehow infringing on alaska. the point that must be made is this is in the national interest and continued protection of these areas is common sense. it is what i know my constituents tell me they want. for the record there are already 380,000 miles of roads in the rest of our national forests w

of the united states as "your president." i do not agree with hardly anything he did, but george w. bush was my president. ronald reagan was my president. i disagree with him most of the time, but george h. w. bush was my president. i am saddened by the fact that we have reached the point where we do not -- where we have one president who does not represent all of us. we should get beyond the rhetoric and talk about what really matters in this country, which is jobs. >> being amazed at how much congressman fox and i have in common. i have been reading "1984" rather recently. what bothers me about what she said is this notion of speed -- of freedom. i think of freedom of speech, not freedom to not have health care. it is not fair that people not take responsibility for their own lives. why should so many of us be paying these large premiums for people who do not decide to have health care? i also think that the other thing you said is that there are a lot of people out there that want health insurance, millions , and cannot get it because they cannot afford it. and a lot of others who are underi

raised taxes 11 times. president george h.w. bush famously raised taxes to reign in the deficit. this really shouldn't be controversial and outside of today's republican party, it isn't. because if you believe that the deficit and debt aren't major problems that need to be addressed, as democrats do and as republicans claim to, then you can't simply ignore revenues at a time when at 15.4% of g.d.p. they are the lowest in 60 years. poll after poll has shown the american people overwhelmingly want to reduce the deficit with a combination of cuts and revenues. every bipartisan group were able to come together because their plans were balanced. and let's be clear, we don't want to increase revenue for the sake of increasing revenue. of course not. but as a nation? we need to pay for the servicable programs the american people want. we need to reign in the deficit and debt. and we need to do it in a responsible way. democrats understand this and congressional republicans should too. because all of this is coming to a head once again. unlike last year, it can start immediately. millio
of it as their our two lists. there is a big list that has a lot of folks on it. i did it for ford and for george w. bush in 2000. i had some calls from prominent republicans who said it would help if i was on the list. some body could leak the fact that it was on the list. the tough part is the smallest. the test to get on the smallest is is the person capable of being vice president and that is usually a small list. >> what about other considerations? >> they should never be allowed to override the first proposition. i think that was one of the problems john mccain had. i like governor palin. i know her, i met her. based on a background, she had been governor for two years and i don't think she passed the test of being ready to take over and i think that was a mistake. host: former vice president dick cheney on abc's "this week." davis instory by susan "usa today." you can see sarah palin with her husband campaigning.

reagan and his commitment to israel? he never went to israel. the as anybody criticized george w. bush? he did not know until his second term. what has this administration actually done for the state of israel? that increased security assistance levels to historic levels. has never been higher. we have added funding to protect israeli citizens against rockets coming from gaza. we have stood by him in the un, vetoing resolutions that were trying to condemn israel. >> excuse me, but why it is there still of feeling, the stories that are written that the relationship between president obama and prime minister netanyahu, for example, are so tense and strange? >> that is a good question. this is an issue where we have always had bipartisan consensus. it is important to hear from the mouths of israelis what they think about the obama administration and their policies. this is from time minister netanyahu. he said there is one thing that stands out clearly in the middle east today, that israel and america stand together. the obama administration gives back to israel security in an unprecedent

that fool? there were references to george w. bush this last week. guest: it is worth remembering that when george bush appointed justice roberts, he nominated him to be an associate justice. when rehnquist died, he moved into being chief justice. he was seen as reliable, conservative, people call that a home run. there was a lot of adulation from the pick of roberts, especially following up on where the nomination process had been before that. myers was being talked about. conservatives are unhappy with where justice roberts was on it. but when he was appointed, that is not where people work. guest: an interesting trivia question for viewers. think about various justices. earl warren appointed by eisenhower. david souter, sandra day o'connor, they were all appointed by republicans and seemed to go off the reservation. here is the question. can you think of any justice appointed by a democratic president that went off the reservation to some extent? i cannot. i wonder why. are republicans not good at figuring out how people will evolve? host: one big thing about the c-span and libraries, yo
